Lisa Lân (Fair Lisa)

This is a lover's lament for Lisa Lân from Anglesey.

Lisa Lân

Bûm yn dy garu lawer gwaith
Do lawer awr mewn mwynder maith
Bûm yn dy gusanu Lisa gêl
Yr oedd dy gwmni'n well na'r mêl.

Fy nghangen lân, fy nghowlad glyd
Tydi yw'r lanaf yn y byd
Tydi sy'n peri poen a chri
A thi sy'n dwyn fy mywyd i.

Pan fyddai'n rhodio gyda'r dydd
Fy nghalon fach sy'n mynd yn brudd
Wrth glywed sŵn yr adar mân
Daw hiraeth mawr am Lisa Lân.

Pan fyddai'n rhodio gyda'r hwyr
Fy nghalon fach a dôdd fel cwyr
Wrth glywed sŵn yr adar mân
Daw hiraeth mawr am Lisa lân.

Lisa, a ddoi di i'm danfon i
I roi fy nghorff mewn daear ddu?
Gobeithio doi di, f'annwyl ffrind
Hyd lan y bedd, lle'r wyf yn mynd.

Hiraeth mawr am Lisa Lân.
Hiraeth mawr am Lisa Lân.

Fair Lisa

I have loved you many times
Yes many an hour in prolonged tenderness
I have kissed you mysterious Lisa
And your company was better than honey.

My pure bough, my warm embrace
You are the purest in the world
You cause pain and anguish
And it is you who steals my life.

When I was strolling during the day
My little heart melted like wax
On hearing the sound of the little birds
I feel great longing for Lisa Lân.

When I was strolling at nightfall
My little heart melted like wax
On hearing the sound of the little birds
I feel great longing for Lisa Lân.

Lisa will you escort me
To place my body in black earth?
I hope you will come, my dear friend
To the side of the grave where I am going.

Great longing for Lisa Lân.
Great longing for Lisa Lân.
